I am beginning to feel like our bees are like lazy,spoiled teens. :lol: We started our first two hives late this year, late may. We started from scratch (new frames with plastic foundation) so the bees had do a lot of comb building. Just two weeks ago we put on the second deep and now they are sucking down 2 jars of syrup each every day. I suspect that is because they are busy building comb in the second deep. It has also been an unusually cold summer (coldest summer on record) this year. Is it normal under these conditions to still be feeding the girls?
